Review
Yet another member supermarket in the Almeida & Azevedo, SA chain. While smaller in size than their Velas store, the café/bar area is more extensive - a longer, full-service bar with a big screen TV for showing the day's sports. They serve Sical coffee even if they still have Costa Verde cups with the Delta Cafés logo. Using a two-group Brasilia machine at the bar, they pull somewhat large shots with a meek, lighter brown crema. It has a basic spice flavor with a minimal taste of wood, but it's diluted given the pour size. ?0.50.
